So I am trying to visit all my blog sisters today and I can't seem to get to stamped smiles. I believe that is Vicki's blog. Can someone send me the link. I never had a problem before so I don't know if it is her blog or if is me. Thanks for helping a Sistah out. Thanks for checking in today.

Ok so yesterday I was visiting some blogs and I went to confessions of a ribbon addict and saw this cute basket and thought to myself "I need to try one of those" and this is result(not as good as I wanted it to come out but I will try another one) I think it came out pretty cute for my first try. I used su dp cherise and some bling. If you want to try to make one of these go over to Jody's blog and check it out. Confessions of a ribbon addict. Well thanks for stopping in again and I will make an effort to do something everyday to post.
I did this card in shades of purple cardstock. I found the stamp at Enchanted Cottage when DH and I went there a few weeks ago. I used my prisma pencils and then added stickles to the little chicks. Not a very fancy card but at least a card. Oh yeah I dug out and old friend for the sentiment. Can you believe I used my Quik Kutz. Something I had put away when I got my cricut. I forgot how hard it was to squeeze those handles. I think I will put it away again. I have the cricut design studio now so maybe I will do a few cards with that. I am off to do the project I said I was going to do today so I may be posting that later. Thanks for stopping in.

I am so sorry I haven't posted in a long time because I have been working 7 days a week and frankly I am exhausted. However I have tomorrow off and my promise to You is to make at least 2 cards and post them and maybe even post some of the cards from the swap. The cards from the swap are awesome. I hope all of you have recieved them. I have a couple more to send out but I am waiting on one to arrive. I thought it would have been here but maybe tomorrow it will arrive. Let me know what you thought of the cards from the swap and If you think we should try it again. I loved all the cards and feel inferior to some of you...lol. Ok until tomorrow when I post some of my own cards and maybe a project that I saw on some else's blog. Thank You for your patience(spelling) and please understand that I am a salaried manager and have to do what is right for the store I am in, even if it means 7 days a week. Thanks for stopping in today and checking on me.

I am still waiting on some swaps to arrive. So I am guessing that I will mail them out on Monday so start stalking the mailman next week because these cards are beautiful. I sat today to make cards and hated everything I came up with. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR I hate when I have these creativity blocks but I think its just because I have worked so much lately and then doing this to my toes and being told to stay off the foot is just all mind boggling. I am off to the craft room (dining room) to give it another try. I picture cards in my head but I can't seem to put them on cardstock. I did manage to grant 3 wishes on scs though and for that I feel good because I have kind of neglected the wish rack due to lack of time but I hope this is a good sign that I granted wishes. Thanks for stopping in

So for those of you who know me My team lost the superbowl last night. I think they lost it to get the media off their backs over this whole spygate thing. But in any event we still lost and I am feeling really down. I had today off fron work and you won't believe this but I stubbed my toe on my queen ann chair in my bedroom today and as a result I broke 2 toes and now I am out of work for a few days(I hope) and this is not good because we have inventory this week. But my toes are so swollen and they put me on strong pain meds and this silly boot that there is no way I could work. I guess I will make some cards because what ekse can I do with no work and not being able to walk. Thanks for stopping in and listening to me.

So I just got home from work and I have been thinking wouldn't it be great to have a card swap between us all. let me see there are 30 of us and we could break up into six groups of five. I would be willing to host it if you wanted. But I would like one of each card so that would mean each person makes 6 cards. and I would keep the extra card, I don't know maybe I am nuts. but the expectation would be to so a full size card and layers and at least one embellishment. Tell me what you think. Because we are in a holiday season we could set a deadline for likd feb. 2nd. That would give us time to get thru the holidays and then work on the swap. You would enclose a self addressed envelope with postage on it. and all cards must be put in a baggie or some kind of protection so if it rains or whatever they won't get ruined. Please let me know what you think.
